Acute allograft rejection (ARE) is one of the most current problem in kidney transplantation. Urinary enzymes (glutathione-S-transferase /GST/. dipeptidil-dipeptidase /DPP/) are frequently used as prognostic factors of ARE. The authors compared the results of light microscopic study (by Banff scheme), and the GST, and DPP secretion in acute rejection. The correlation between the laboratory, and histology findings wasn't significant. our results suggest that both GST, and DPP are very sensitive, but less specific indicators in ARE, since their activity increases in many other damages as well.
